The vast majority of extensions work fine with FF3, and are simply waiting for the dev to bump the version number. You just need to tell FF to ignore the version check - it's simple, painless and no debugging required.
P.S. I couldn't reply directly to your last comment because there's no 'reply' link available
Apr 2nd 2008 6:51PM I don't know why so many people are struggling with extensions working. Adblock Plus, deskCut, Firebug - all work perfectly.
In fact, I currently have 30 extensions and they all work. Some are dev versions from the dev website, but most are straight from moz addons.
Some on the comments here need to spend more time getting friendly with Google and less time posting "it doesn't work" IMHO.

No, you've just described a 'release candidate'.
Just because you've had a few problems, doesn't mean they're universal. I've been running 8.04 for a couple of months and it's been solid with few of the problems you describe.
All of the small enhancements and new features in 8.04 make it an excellent step up from 7.10.
In summary, a poorly argued 'chicken little' article....
Mar 21st 2008 12:35PM It really amazes me all the people who keep posting "my extensions don't work" and yet they read websites like this. It's a trivial hack (or install MR Tech Toolkit) to make 99% of extensions work. 30 seconds searching would provide the answers.
FF3 is ready for the masses, the majority of whom don't know or care about extensions.
